      1. Amen. Shayamalan’s movies have been consistently weak and time wasting for me. I still remember a film he made many years ago with Bryce Howard, the daughter of Ron Howard in one of her first films. She was a reasonably good actress and visually appealing on screen but the dopey plot and sluggish direction bored me to death. She was floating around in a body of water like a mythical scene from the time of King Arthur and The Knights of The Round Table (although she was in a modern era setting).

        I’ve seen one or two more of his productions and they have not been good. I won’t waste any more time on them.
